Firstly, I dont know much about computers :/ Could you please help me build the best gaming pc for $3000 (Im happy to spend more If Its better). I play CSS. You may say that $3k Is overkill..I just want a really leet PC with all the bells & whistles Here Is what I would like/ want Included: I want the Nvidia 9800GX2 card A Great cpu (Intel Core2Duo E8400, that any good?) A really good sound card & headphones Im thinking I want atleast 4 gig of ram 22/24inch Monitor A fast loading hard drive (I hear there are some better for gaming) A case that will keep everything really cool (I have had overheating issues in the past with gaming cases) 1000w PSU I will be running Xp home (not sure about getting Vista yet) & I have no Intentions on overclocking, thats why I would rather spend more on getting the best I can buy. I will also be using this for d/l movies If that makes any difference or should I keep my current pc for that? Thanks from Australia -SPARTA P.S I hope this Is the correct place to post. I have also searched & found nothing current on this topic.
